Poem: The Fine Line

honest business cardBetween a reason and excuse

A fine line, a filament, a dilettante rope

Unfurls and hides. We might not see yet can’t refuse

The shades of meaning found in joy and hope.

Choose words carefully –

That’s the lesson, the lemon, the luminosity.

Should you be charged with loquacious verbosity,

Sentenced to the slammer,

Annealed by hammer,

Or whatever indignities fail to fit the crime,

Remind the judge (and jury, too),

Concoct a plan, a verbal stew,

And excuse your reason with a rhyme.
